Question Does anyone know if 08+ Legacy Mirrors are interchangeable with WRX/STI?

I am trying to find out of 2008-2009 Legacy GT side mirrors are the same as WRX and STI for the glass part.

I have recently completed a batch of Legacy GT blue tinted convex side mirrors and I have read some info saying the 08 legacy is same as the 08-14 wrx/sti mirror glass.
If that is the case that would be great as I had planned to make the mirrors for WRX soon!

Here are a few pictures.

Anyone know for sure 08+ hatch and sedan wrx/sti all have the same mirrors?

Looking at the mirrors they look the same as 08+ legacy. I'll have to try and find a local or buy a mirror set to check fitment.

Are you referring to just the glass or the entire mirror shell?

Just the glass part. That's what I make for legacy. Would be awesome if it also fits wrx/sti's.

If you make more could you do the yellow tent? That's what I want but the provas are expensive as hell.

Don't know if I can make any yellows or not. I've only ever made blue tinted ones so far.

I believe they are the same. Think thats what I figured out when i was looking at them for my LGT.

Here's a link to RSD that sells them for the GR's. They have both the blue and yellow ones. I'd imagine these are the same ones I have for my LGT.

No but you can transfer it over from stock mirrors. I just transferred them over in my legacy gt.

What's the advantage of the blue tint? I can see the advantage of the convex shape and even of the yellow tint cutting glare. I am just wondering how the blue comes into play.

cuts some glare as well as looks good. Never had anyone ask about yellow before. Every car we've made these for has wanted blue tinted.
